A Family Of German Shepherds Won’t Leave The Dumpsters Where They Last Saw Their Owners

Recently, Lisa Reams, the director of Saving Grace Animal Rescue (SGAR), learned that two German shepherds had been dumped at a public landfill in the Yazoo, Mississippi region. She sped out to see if she could assist without giving it a second thought.

But when she got there, she was met with a surprise. There weren’t only two humans in need; there were also two pups.

She coaxed the two friendly pack leaders into her car in hopes of getting them to safety.

“They both just went right into her car,” Jennifer Brooks, president of SGAR’s sister shelter in New York, NYC Second Rescue, told The Dodo. “And then she was able to get the puppies.”

Reams piled the entire family of shepherds into her car and sped out to the veterinarian’s office where testing revealed that both adults, called Luke and Jenny, had heartworms, which are completely curable.

Phoenix and Miles, fortunately, had findings that were negative, and all four puppies have been approved for foster care.

But finding a foster home has gotten increasingly difficult. So the entire family is now slated to head up to NYC Second Chance Rescue, where there are more fosters available.

As of right now, all four dogs are still available for foster or adoption. Shelter staff members aren’t sure if any will be fostered together, but they’re grateful that the family stayed together at the dump site long enough to get a second chance at life.

“They’re safe now,” Brookes said. “And they’ll never be put out like that again.”
